Palm Sunday

The week before the Resurrection of Christ, Jesus entered Jerusalem to the applaud of the crowds.
Hosanna to the Son of David!" "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"
"Hosanna in the highest!"
The scripture records that "the whole city was stirred up". Not just the Jews, but everyone. People asked, "Who is this?"
They answered, "Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee."
Jesus had been preaching and teaching for nearly 3 years. He had picked 12 followers (apostles) to help him and carry on his message.
The crowds were excited and cheered.
But soon they would all have a choice. To follow Jesus or walk away. Everyone has a choice. Some choose to follow Jesus Christ. Some do not.
Some choose to follow two to three times a year.
Others follow daily.
Be the example that brings others to Christ. Be the light. Shine.
Go in peace and go with God
